Attribute-Based Remote Data Auditing and User Authentication for Cloud Storage Systems

Mohammad Ali

Volume 14, Issue 3 , October 2022, Pages 43-49


  Remote data auditing (RDA) protocols enable a cloud server to persuade an auditor that it is storing a data file honestly. Unlike digital signature(DS) schemes, in RDA protocols, the auditor can carry out the auditing procedure without having the entire data file. Therefore, RDA protocols seem to be ...  Read More
